Rangers to lead at the interval

Rangers’ loss at Celtic ended not just their unbeaten run, but also their streak of scoring first; The Gers bagged the first goal in seven consecutive games prior to that loss. To be fair, Hearts also have a tendency to score first; as they’ve done so in five of their last seven games. The thing is, Hearts tend to fall short when they play against Rangers; The Gers have drawn first blood in five of their last six meetings with Hearts. Due to their tendency to open the scoring, Rangers have taken the lead at half-time in eight of their last 11 meetings with Hearts. With this in mind, we believe that Rangers will take the lead at half-time.

Both teams to score

These are some of the highest-scoring teams in the Premiership; only three teams (Rangers included) have bagged more goals than Hearts this season. The Jam Tarts have been consistent when it comes to scoring; they’ve found the net in six of their last seven games. Similarly, Rangers have not had much trouble scoring goals; as they’ve done so in 22 of their last 23 games across all competitions. Conversely, Rangers have conceded a lot of goals recently; they allowed six goals in their last two games alone. For this reason, we’re making the prediction that both teams will score.

We’ll see plenty of goals

We’ve already established that these are two high scoring teams; Hearts have scored 2 goals per game on average in their last six games. Similarly, Rangers have been the second highest scoring team in the Premiership; they’ve averaged 2 goals per game all season. Due to their goalscoring ability, Rangers’ games tend to be on the high-scoring side; as three of their last four games went over 2.5. In addition, we would like to mention that encounters between these two have produced a lot of goals, especially at this stadium; five of Hearts’ last six visits to this stadium went over the 2.5 goal margin. On that note, this will likely be a high-scoring game.
